Evaluating Lecture Capture’s Impact on Student Outcomes
In 2004, the Dental School, University of Maryland, Baltimore envisioned a school offering state-of-the-art technology with lecture capture at its core. Students would have access to course content 24/7, and a newly-launched distance-ed program in dental hygiene would thrive with online lectures. After an extensive evaluation they selected Mediasite for their endeavor and off they went webcasting every lecture and lab session from that point forward.
Now with five-thousand captures, half a million views and several years of student surveys compiled, Dr. James Craig, professor and educational consultant from the Dental School, is ready to share some real results that prove lecture capture has transformed the student experience.
